I'm like most people, glued to the TV watching the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio.  Unlike most people, I am a fashion blogger and think about things in a slightly different light than others.  As I was watching the track and field events, I was impressed by how on trend the shoes are.  Of course athletes are looking for traction, support, etc. from a shoe but they're also stylish.  I've noticed a lot of bright colors even when I was just visiting a local Nike Outlet a couple months ago.  Neon/fluorescent colors are a huge trend right now and I'm in love with it.  I think bright colors are attractive and make you stand out in a crowd.

Can we also talk about Usain Bolt's special gold shoes?  Amazing!  He's an amazing athlete and absolutely deserves gold shoes to match all the gold medals he's been winning.  Unrelated to fashion: I just want to say he seems like such a good person.  The fact that he told an interview they had to pause the questions so he could respectfully stand at attention for another country's anthem just speaks volumes about him.  Needless to say, I'm a huge Bolt fan now!
